Celebrate Earth Day Every Day With 18 of Our Favorite Sustainable Home Brands

By Banu Ibrahim and Grace Miller
Stock up on eco housewares and everyday essentials from these brands doing their part to protect the planet.

Going completely carbon neutral is much easier said than done. But just because you can’t make a full 180 on your current lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t do your part to help better the planet. Are you using single-use plastic bags at the grocery store instead of reusable ones? Have you considered swapping out your current toothbrush for one made of bamboo? Remember, it’s all about baby steps.

A great place to start is your home. Nowadays, you can source of-the-moment rugs, furniture, and even everyday kitchen essentials from purveyors who are committed to providing sustainable products. By shopping these brands, you can help make a small (but mighty!) difference, one pillow or chair at a time. It’s an easy way to feel good while also making your space look good—and who doesn’t want that? 

We've rounded up seven home companies doing their part to protect the planet. Shop the home essentials below to make your space more eco-friendly not just on Earth Day, but every day.

If you want to change the world, start by making your bed. Relaxed linen sheets make any bed look chicly lived-in, and when those sheets are made from sustainably-sourced, eco-friendly materials, you can smile a little bigger while tucking in. Primary Goods's sheets and comforters also come ready to snap together at the top and bottom, so there's no more tugging or bunching in the middle of the night.

By personally traveling to each country and using only local materials, they avoid material shipping emissions and place a very low impact on the environment to produce immaculately crafted, fair-trade goods.

Our most flattering pant—now with a straight leg. The Straight Leg Crop has a waist-nipping high rise and a cropped leg—meaning, we took the fit of our bestselling Wide Leg Crop and made it in a cool, straight fit.

Rothy's

The only thing better than a great pair of flats is a great pair of flats that helps save the turtles. Rothy's bags are carefully crafted with a proprietary blend of marine plastic and Rothy’s signature thread, which is spun from single-use water bottles (45+ million and counting!). Their bags and shoes are also 3D knit to shape—resulting in far less waste than typical manufacturing. Plus, because their accessories are made from plastics, they are 100% machine washable.
